There's a time to bloom and a time to seed.

  • INGREDIENTS: 92% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 8% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT: High waist hits at belly button, tight leg throughout, secret pocket in back waistband. Inseam stretches from 28-31".
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Kelp green with a white dandelion on back and a white blow ball on front printed with water based ink. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage.

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Clothes can only be made cheaply if people and/or the planet are being exploited. In 2022, the reality is we are extracting limited resources from the planet to make limitless things. The more plastic clothing made in slave like conditions overseas we support with our hard earned dollars, the more we tell brands that YES, we are down with limitless consumption. When we pay workers a living wage and consider that the planet cannot survive at the pace we are overproducing, clothing can't be inexpensive. We need so much less than we're told we need, therefore do not need to buy dozens of $6 items. It's always better to save up for ethical pieces. (This message is to those with some disposable income, not to those living in poverty.)

We pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $2.50 for Shein to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $78 dollar top, profit may be $30-40, which must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping, advertising, freight charges), taxes, and payroll to our fairly paid employees. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing heirloom piece you'll treasure for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - We don't make the same thing twice, and this is why: our creations are art! An artist would not repaint the same piece over and over. And for you, our beloved customer, this means your piece is very unique and bespoke. No one else will have it. This is how we used to make clothes long ago-- items just for you that are meant for you and not mass produced to maximize profits.

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

A - We only work with small family owned shops employing 8-10 people paying well above minimum wage in Los Angeles, CA.


Q - Is it sustainable and organic?

A - Anyone who claims true sustainability while producing a product is greenwashing, intentional or not. We are responsible. To be truly sustainable we should all be wearing undyed, unisex, 100% recycled fabric scraps, government issued uniforms for 5-10 years at a time. While we are not that, we are much, much better than most of the alternatives out there. Our fabric is 99% closed loop, low plastic, made with fair wages, GOTS certified dyed, water based inked, made in the USA, and we donate money to a new charity every month. We will never stop seeking more ways to be make a cleaner and more beautiful piece of clothing!

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the meantime we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $68 dollar top, profit may be $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - Never. Nothing gold can stay. Each piece is specially designed for the vibe and spirit of the season. Once it's gone, it's gone!

Purusha People Dandelion Phases Leggings Review

Green Dream

These are my second favorite PP pants because the green color is so dreamy. I can tell these are a little less see through and I'm so appreciative, because I wear these out all the time and get compliments. I have never owned any other active wear or legging that comes close to Purusha People.

My second skin

My Purusha People clothing items are my absolute favorite! They are the softest clothes I’ve ever felt-- they completely satisfy my texture sensitivities with their softness. I live in my “yoga top” bra thinger and only take it off to wash it. The pants in these photos are size large, I usually wear size 10 pants and they fit perfectly. I love how they go up a little bit higher so I’m not constantly hiking up my pants during yoga to avoid my butt crack from showing. I am 5’9” and while the pants do fit perfectly around my waist, hips, bum and thighs they could be perceived as a little “short” as you can see they don’t cover my ankles. Their designs are also always so cute, I look forward to the day where I have enough of these leggings to get rid of my microplastic filled leggings from the past. It is such a drag to have leggings disintegrate over time from washing them often-- that is not the case with eucalyptus leggings! The more you wash them the softer they get. And I don’t worry about them deteriorating over time. The hand dyed colors are always SO beautiful from Parusha People! Seriously cannot get over all the earth tones that match their earth ethics as a company. They have amazing customer service and are doing incredible things in regards to offering alternatives to harmful materials / business practices that run rampant in the fashion industry. When you invest in Parusha People you will be happy to know that you are supporting a small business who is paving the way for new industry standards of ethical and sustainable practices. It really is a bonus that they just so happen to be the most comfortable clothes-- I call my pieces my “second skin.” 5/5 stars

Another favorite!!

I absolutely love these pants! I’ve never worn a more comfortable pair of leggings. I wear a size L at 5’2” 165lbs. Fits me wonderfully!

So soft

Best fit for me. I little longer than some may prefer, but they look great scrunched with boots. Sheerer on the ****, but I just wear nudes underneath. The color is perfectly unique and warm.
